Conclusion: Played since '71, mostly '70s Les Paul. Have had strat, tele, 335 copy, cheap strat copy, d35, Seagull. I would definitely get another Agile, possibly the same model. The sound and feel are nearly identical to the real thing. Really a bargain.
Conclusion: Been playing since 1980, I own 13 guitars and two amps, and modelers. If stolen I'd buy another - the action and play ability is like a 70's Les Paul Standard Tobacco finish - smooth as glass. I now have an AL2000, AL2800, AL3100 and this Al3000 and I have to tell you except for the heel joint, which is standard on Les Paul type guitars, and short of having 24 frets, this thing is a joy to play, listen to and LOOK at. Absolutely another successful coupe of a guitar...
Conclusion: I have been playing 17 years or more and own several guitars, a couple in around the 1k range. This thing easily ranks with them. I have been thinking about trying one out just based off the reviews read about them. Of course I was a little skeptical. I have played strats all my life but now wanted a LP body but didnt feel like payin so much for it. I really dislike the Epi headstock, the Gibson headstock is cool but the price for something similar is really not cool!
Conclusion: I've been playing guitar for a little over 2 yrs. I own another electric (Gretsch G6120 RHH), an acoustic (Taylor Big Baby), an acoustic electric (Breedlove AD plus). I did research the guitar a lot before my purchase, I suggest you do the same. If it were stolen I'd buy another for sure! LOVE the wide fretboard makes all the difference! Plays very easy.
Conclusion: 30 plus years playing. Had/have Airline somethingorother (old), DanElectro (old) Gibson ES 125 (really old), Guild Starfire (old), Post-war Epiphone Zephyr w/New York p/up (really old, looks great, sounds good, plays lousy), 70's Takamine F-363S, '74 Telecaster, '79 Yamaha SA 2000, the 2 Agiles, 2004 American HSS Strat, 2004 Epiphone Emperor Regent. I might have asked more detailed fret/neck questions, but if I'd known about the guitars issues I might not have bought it.
Conclusion: I've been playing about two years, and my only other electric is a POS strat copy. I wish I'd bought one of these two years ago. I would definitely buy it again if lost. I love everything about this guitar, but the best feature is the playability. It's really easy to play. When I was shopping I checked out Epiphone and Gibson Les Pauls. For less money, it's definitely better than any Epiphone. I haven't been able to find anything about the Gibson Les Paul Standard...
Conclusion: I have been playing about 5 years, i own a Dean baby ML, a couple of basses (both Fender), i also own a LAG acoustic, various digital pianos, a recording studio, several amps. There is nothing i wish i had asked before buying this guitar. All my questions and more were answered by Kurt - great service. If it were lost or stolen, i would 100% buy it again. I can't stress how brilliant this is for the money.
Conclusion: Overall, after the couple of months that i have owned this guitar i have been extremely happy with it. It's durable, sounds great and looks great. I'm actually looking to buy another one on the same lines as the Al-3000MAP CSB EMG in the near future. Love how easy it is to play and how mean it sounds.
